102.3 began its life as a classic country station called Kudzu. In 2008, Kudzu moved up the dial to 104.9 and 102.3 was reinvented as a Classic Hits station by then owners Scott and Joan Peters. When JC Media, LLC owners, Chris and Melinda Marsalis purchased the station in April of 2019, they tweaked the live stream just a bit from Classic Hits to Classic Hits-Rock. This set The Shark apart from other adult contemporary stations and gave it an edgier feel that our listeners love. The format is freshened by daily features, themed weekends, specialty programs & promotions and a world-class airstaff.
